This is a typical educational film explaining how the dollar works. Cool scale graphic, but otherwise just you basic romp through ecconomics.

Much more detailed film about how the dollar works than the somewhat moronic "How the dollar works" made earlier. This film gives several scenarios of people putting the dollar to use. We also learn of what drives the dollar's worth up and down. Although it won't earn prizes for film, this is a great overview film.

Narrator seems to take inordinate care in pronouncing "dollar," "money," and "bank." Think I want to put on some Pink Floyd now...

Pretty good explanation of dollars versus purchasing power, and shows the down side to those on fixed income and wage earners and the benefits to businessmen and owners. Capitalism. Go figure.
